KANSAS CITY -- After two weeks of exclusive daytime baseball, which limited the effects of harsh weather, the Tigers are settling into a normal routine, with three consecutive night games on the road against the Royals.

It's a routine that best suits manager Jim Leyland.

"As we sit here today, we can consider ourselves fortunate that we played them all [the nine day games]," Leyland said. "We got 'em all in. But I do like night games, getting up in the morning, having coffee, walking around a little bit."

The Tigers will continue their night stretch at home on Thursday and Friday against the Rangers before returning to day baseball on Saturday and Sunday.
